Anti-Trans Violence and Rhetoric Reached Record Highs Across America in 2021

Anti-Trans Violence and Rhetoric Reached Record Highs Across America in 2021

2021 was the deadliest year for transgender and gender non-conforming people in the U.S. on record. At least 50 trans and gender non-conforming people were killed this year alone, per a report by LGBTQ advocacy organization the Human Rights Campaign (HRC)—the highest number of deaths since the organization began recording fatal violence in 2013.

The report makes clear that the full number of fatalities is likely much higher still; the deaths of trans and gender non-conforming people are often underreported, and the victims themselves are often misgendered. (At least 24 of those listed in HRC’s report were initially misgendered by the media or police.)

Anti-Transgender Activist Quoted by BBC Calls For Trans Women to Be ‘Lynched’

Anti-Transgender Activist Quoted by BBC Calls For Trans Women to Be ‘Lynched’

An anti-transgender activist recently quoted in a controversial BBC article posted online advocating for violence against transgender women and called for them to be lynched.

Lily Cade, a lesbian porn star who apologized amid a series of sexual assault allegations in 2017, was featured in a controversial BBC article that claims trans women pressure lesbians into sex.

In a post on her website called “Where the are these children’s mothers,” Cade characterized trans women as “vile, weak, disgusting whiny, fake-victim” and supported acts of violence against them.

“Cancel this so hard that no man dare walk the path of the trans woman in public ever again! Enough is enough. Lynch Kaitlyn (Jenner)! Lynch the ‘Sisters’ Wachowski! Lynch Laurel Hubbard! Lynch Fallon Fox!” the post read.

I Wasn’t Born Trans

I was born a f***ing baby.

I Wasn’t Born Trans

I am transgender not because I was born trans, but because a particular label had to be created to define my experience. People like me are often treated as second-class citizens. We are forced to draw lines in the sand and define every emergent variation on the human experience because, if we don’t, we are met with yellow and red tape at every attempt to fit into our cis/heteronormative patriarchal society.

Be Prepared For Possibly Far More Serious Anti Trans & Anti LGBTQ+ Antics

Be Prepared For Possibly Far More Serious Anti Trans & Anti LGBTQ+ Antics

Owen Jones is a leftwing journalist who’s been a steadfast trans ally, and recently posted a tweet mentioning online TERF radicalization and also when he recently interviewed trans author Paris Lees talked about TERFs spending all their days immersed in online echo chambers feeding each other’s obsessive hatred of trans women. It’s been a far to frequent occurrence that we’ve seen spree killers in the United States who before committing mass murder have spent an enormous amount of time immersed in online White Supremacist message boards, in fact we don’t even have to look to the United States as recently we had the incel killer who shot dead five people in Plymouth and beforehand had spent months obsessing on incel message boards about his microcystic grievances, so one has to start asking how long before transphobic terfy bigots with their ever increasing obsessive cult of hate towards trans women ends up resulting in one of them actually doing some serious physical harm to one or more trans women?

“I’m Not Into That:” The Difference Between Genital Preference and Bigotry.

“I’m Not Into That:” The Difference Between Genital Preference and Bigotry.

Dating exclusion and genital preferences are a broad and controversial topic, so get yourself a drink and get comfortable because we’re going to get real uncomfortable. It seems like folks are doing a lot of hand-wringing about whether it’s more or less obligatory to include trans folks in your dating pool or if excluding us makes you a bad person.

And to that, I say, “wrong question.” We keep having this argument in comments sections and blogs. If we’re going to talk about genital preferences and trans-exclusionary attitudes in dating, we can’t do this halfway. This isn’t as simple a topic as it gets made out to be on the internet. Our mantras about trans women being women and trans men being men aren’t there to help make anything better.

Can we be honest, cis folks? Have you ever said “trans women are women” in the comments section and had a person turn around and go, “wow, I never thought of it like that?” No. Because you’re not saying that to help trans people. If we’re honest, you’re saying that to help you. It’s a performance you put on. So, here’s the deal. If you want to keep doing that song and dance, you can. Have at it. If you’re interested in understanding and thinking about this conversation differently, let’s talk.
